Sophomore Class History
When we entered the new building in 1923,
numbering 241, we found ourselves the young-
est class in the building Q7th gradej, reg-
istering in Miss Courtright's room. This
year passed quickly as did the next, when
we registered under Miss Comstock, with
our class taking part in interscholastic meets
and a fefw social activities of our own.
The next year, our Freshman year, we
found that our class enrollment was 4-2. We
registered in the study hall, being the largest
class in the building, under the supervision
of Mr. Geist and Miss Thomas. This year
we had a number of boys on the high school
football team and several on the basketball
team. Outside of this we won for ourselves
two interscholastic pennants, one for boys'
and girls' track and one for boys' baseball
which we had also won the year before.
We managed to stick to the finals in boys'
basketball, but were beaten two games out
of three by the Seniors.
After a short summer vacation we re-
turned to school to find that our class had
been divided, due to its size, and we were
now registering under two new teachers, Miss
Kellogg and Miss Warner. This year the
boys decided to go in for sports and about
eight of them went out for football, the ma-
jority of whom received letters. After the
football season they turned to basketball and
found that five men played on the first team
and received letters. .
This year the Sophomore boys' basketball
team won the pennant by winning every game
except two, losing to the Eighth Grade on
account of ineligibilities and the health of
our best players. We lost the final game
to the Faculty. The girls were not so for-
tunate. ' '
During the Sophomore and Freshman
years the class has been very active in ath-
letics and other school activities, but when
it comes to social activities they do not rate
so high, there having been no parties held
by them. We may add that when the class
of '28 graduates we will be the first class
to go through the whole six grades at the
Sophomore Class Poem
Forward, Class of '28,
Show the world how high we rate,
Fling our colors to the sky
And as the years go marching by,
Do the best we can, classmates!
Show 'em we have some sky high aims,
Show 'em we can play the game,
We have it in us, I know it-
All we have to do is show it-
Forward, "Maroon and Gold", to fame.
Work hard, play hard and be good sports
Although we meet with hardships of all sorts,
Smile and start to "plug away",
Till we grow better every day-
And our ships will come sailing into port.
Bexley, we'll be true to you,
You'll be proud of the things we do-
So onward, trusty Sophomores,
Let our ambitions upward soar,
Forward! Carry on for the "White and Blue".
